Don't you just love the delicate lacy paper. I am guessing that they are place cards. I will use them in my journal though. The pen nib seems to be of high quality. I have one like this but not all the prongs hit the paper at the same time so I hope this one works properly. The shop owner had a beautiful display of calligraphed envelopes she has received over the years. I can't believe I didn't think to get a picture of it. It makes me glad that I have saved my envelopes as well.
